IRG is available to speak to your school, civic or faith community groups.  Their mission is to build bridges through education.    Go to www.irgMN.org to find out more.

Mark Schultz sounds genuinely excited as he lists the benefits of planting in containers and raised beds: "You have complete control over the soil; it's easy to water--if a container is self-watering it uses 20% of the water of a conventional garden; pest control is easier; there's no weeding or tilling; it's easier to maintain; and it's attractive. It allows anyone with a level surface and sun to have a garden--urban gardener, patio, driveway, sidewalk, even a rooftop!"

We care deeply about the natural world around us here at KAXE-KBXE.  Each week, our resident phenologist John Latimer's Phenology Report provides a comprehensive look at what's  happening in nature here in northern Minnesota.
